Meudon, Paris by Andre Kertesz (1928)

The photograph titled “Meudon, Paris” was taken by the artist Andre Kertesz in the year 1928. The image shows an urban scene in Meudon, a suburb of Paris. It depicts a street that leads the viewer’s eye towards a large viaduct with massive arches in the background. Smoke can be seen billowing from a chimney atop the viaduct, suggesting industrial activity. The foreground of the photograph captures everyday life, with several men occupying the street: one man appears to be carrying a large, translucent material, and others are walking or standing, engaging in various activities. The buildings to the left are of typical French architectural style and show signs of wear, indicating they may have been quite old at the time the photo was taken. The picture is in black and white, which was typical for the time period it was taken. The photograph combines elements of daily life with industrial progress, a theme often explored in the early 20th century.
